S n e a k peak of the n e w music building Alex Bellca Campus N ews Co-Editor

Last Thursday, The Anchor was given a sneak peek inside Hope College’s new Jack H. Mill­ er Center for Musical Arts. Over the last ten months, the facility has risen quickly from a field of sand and mud to become one of the most architecturally impres­ sive buildings on campus. Kara Slater, Project Manager for G D K O A K Construction, a joint venture between Hol­ land-based G D K Construction and Owen Ames Kimball from Grand Rapids, showed off the building's progress. While most ofthe lastyear ofthe projectwas spent constructing the exterior, the construction team has re­ cently started to focus their ef­ forts on the interior. Even as the final sections of brick and stone are finished on the north walls, crews are hanging drywall and even painting part of the build­ ing’s expansive footprint. With the interior walls al­ most completely framed, it was easy to imagine the uses and di­ mensions of different rooms as

Tim Brown was introduced as “a native of Battle Creek, a die-hard University of Michigan fan, a Hope Alumnae, Dean of the Chapel for four years, a pastor, President of Western Theological Center and most importantly, a man who serves Christ.” Brown opened with a verse for everyone to memorize and “live into it.” “Ifanyone is in Christ there is a new creation. The old has passed away, behold the new one has come,” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Brown then gave two stories that applied to the verse. The first was from the book, “The Pastor" by Eugene Peterson. The story revolved around himself as a child being raised in a Christian family. He is taught in the ways of Christ by his family but troubled when a bully. Garrison, wants to fight him.

Japan and China reduce regional tension Shubham Sapkota W orld Co-Editor

After rows of conflict in the East China Sea, China and Japan have agreed to reduce tension over the disputed islands in the region. This comes right before the meeting of their leaders who have been trying to sustain the regional rivalry next week. This agreement between senior Chi­ nese and Japanese officials was done in Beijing on Friday. Chinese officials said that a crisis management mechanism is going to be implemented to cease the situation. The islands that are in the midst of the ten­ sion are known as Diaoyu by China and Senkaku by Japan. At the moment these islands are in Japanese control. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has hinted that this diminishing ten­ sion over the islands would set the mood for his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in the coming week. “Both Japan and China are coming to the view that itwould benefit, not just the two coun­ tries, but regional stability, if a summit is held,” President Jin­ ping said. This is going to be the firstformal meeting between the two leaders since both of them came in power.

Chinese foreign ministry has stated that a four-point agreement has been reached. The agreement consists of ar­ rangements that both sides have agreed upon. It has been negotiated in the statement “to prevent the situation from ag­ gravating through dialogue and consultation and establish man­ agement mechanisms to avoid

In March, Putin signed a bill to absorb Crimea back into Russia, which is one of the Iron Curtain countries. His following move was sending Russian forces to Ukraine’s eastern border, which raised eyebrows in the West. As U.S. President Obama strongly advised Putin to call back his troops from the border, discus­ sions of sanctions and boycotts started to rise in the West. H o w ­ ever it appears as none of the measures intimidate Putin, if not make him more aggressive on Ukraine. Even though it seems like post-ceasefire Ukraine seems more stable, it is unclear what might happen after new groups ofRussian forces pass the Ukrai­ nian border. Itisalsonot certain that there is Russian military presence in eastern Ukraine;

however, it is greatly suspected that Kremlin has been supplying troops to the pro- Russian reb­ els. O n the other hand, Ukraine confirmed that N A T O ’s help de­ liveries started in September. As the tension between Kremlin and White House isris­ ing, many, including ex-USSR leader Gorbachev, argue that this might lead to a new Cold War. Ironically former Soviet Union President made this state­ ment at an event in Germany that was organized to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The conflicts have been very tough on Ukraine’s economy, but itseems that the human cost is even greater than the other expenses. It has been reported that over 4,000 people died (the number includes the 298 people on the M H 1 7 flight), 9,336 were injured, 488,466 people fled to other countries and 442,219 of the Ukrainians immigrated to the other parts ofthe battle-torn country.

R e n o w n e d B rente no String Quartet visits Hope Ghacfirs Alicia Ghastin

A rts Co-Editor

The Hope College Great Performance Series presented ' the Brentano String Quartet this past weekend in Dimnent Chapel. The quartet also visited Hope's Music Department for a master class with Hopes string ensembles. The quartet travels with prestigiousacclaim and is one of the most Well-respected clas­ sical groups in the world. As of this past July, the Brentano Quartet succeeded the Tokyo Quartet as Artists in Residence at Yale University. The group is also the collaborative ensemble for the Van Cliburn Interna­ tional Piano Competition. The Brentano String Quartet formed in 1992 and includes Mark Steinberg, violinist, Serena Canin, violinist, Misha Amory, violist, and Nina Lee, cellist. The group is named for Antonie Brentano, w h o m many consider to be Ludwig Van Beethoven’s love interest. The Brentano String Quar­ tets performance at Hope not only showed the versatility of the quartet’s orchestration but also of each individual player. The program consisted of three starkly contrast pieces: the first a “String Quartet” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart from the classical era, the sec­ ond a “String Quartet" by Bela Bartok from the modern era and the third a “String Quartet” by Johannes Brahms from the early romantic era. “The slow movement of the Mozart would have to be my favorite,” Canin said. But each group member said that the music overall was so great they could not say any were better than the others.

UNITED IN MUSIC— The Brentano String Quartet has been together and gathering fame since 1991. They began^eirtlme as Artists In Residence at Yale University this year. The Mozart piece was very poetic, taking the audience through a series of imagina­ tive scenes. The Bartok, how­ ever, used an extended string technique that would have been akin to nails on a chalkboard in Mozart's day. One charismatic and unique aspect of the group was their motion. Each player moved individually, but as a whole the quartet looks like a living or­ ganism, breathing and moving together. “In a way, itis only natural to move with the music. It flows through the performer, and there is nothing else you can do,” Amory said when asked about the movement.

The ensemble skills of the quartet are also great. The melodic figures in the music passed along the parts with ease, especially in the first movement of the Mozart Quar­ tet. “Poco Allegretto con variazioni” in the “String Quartet in B-flat major, Op. 67” by Brahms stood out among the rest. The piece prominently featured a viola solo, which is an usual instrument to carry the melodic line in a quartet. “Yes, I kind of stole the spot light in that one when Idid not have to wear my viola mute like the others,” Amory said.

C h a n g e s in Chapel spark discussion Alicia Ghastin A rts Co-Editor

Hope College students have started the firstChapel String Quartet in conjunction with Hope’s regular Chapel Band. The quartet performs with the Chapel BancTduring the normal Chapel services every couple of months. The quartet, including Madalyn Navis ('17), Christo­ pher Waechter (T5), Cameron Holder (15) and Mac Watson (15), performed two weeks ago for the firsttime, and again Nov. 10. They received positive reac­ tions from students. Bringing the perspective of classical music into worship at Chapel isspecial to many Hope students involved in the music department. Max Tustin (17) and Leah Marie Peterson (15), both music majors at Hope, said that music of allkinds, not just contemporary worship music, is a way for them to experience God. "As a musician, music plays

a major role in my connec­ tion with God," Peterson said, "Music has caused me some of my greatest joys as well as some of my biggest challenges. Being able to use music as a way to worship isextremely important to me." "Music definitely plays a role in my spiritual life.Not limiting to worship music, I think music can offer a wonderfully unique medium in seeing the beauty of God," Tustin said. As classical and contempo­ rary musicians both comment­ ed on the division of opinions on the use of contemporary music in the Church. "I know that some classi­ cally trained musicians snub more modern musical tradi­ tions. However, Ibelieve that all genres of music can be glori­ fying to God, and Ienjoy the more contemporary music that isused in campus ministries," Peterson said. Her opinion presents a two-way relation­ ship between different forms of

music. “Music is a great way to honor [God] with some of the gifts He gave us. Hearing others who possess a great deal more musical ability than Ipraise God and sing songs about Him makes me think more about God and feel a greater connec­ tion,” Chris Gager (’17), a non­ music student, said. For Hope students both involved in music ministry and in the congregation, music is an important outlet for worship. “Icome from a traditional church, so I enjoy the music at Hope as itprovides a contrast to what I am used to. It is upbeat and exciting on spiritual level, and full of life and hope,” Gager said of the divide between tradi­ tional and contemporary music. “Itis a reminder that there are many ways to worship God.” Let the Anchor know your thoughts.

It’s O n Us A message to the Hope College Community, Andrew Harrison Student Leader Several studies estimate that one in five women are sexually assaulted while in college. Only 13 percent of rape survivors report their assault. Campus sexual assault is a silent epidemic that is plaguing schools across the country, and itis time we start talking about it. The White House recently launched the “It’s O n Us” Campaign this fall, in partnership with Generation Progress, to bring a national awareness to this issue and end the culture pfviolence and silence that exists at colleges nationwide. The campaign offers tools to help students organize around the cause on their campuses, and includes a PSA featuring respected athletes and well-known celebrities speaking out. It is time to take responsibility on our campus and change the culture. It’s time for us to be proactive. While rape is an uncomfortable topic of conversation, it’s literally on us to start the conversation. Ifwe are able to talk about such an uncomfortable thing that occurs at our school, we can confront this issue head on and headstrong. Only in having an open discussion with allmembers of our community- the administration, faculty, counselors, students, and student groups- will we be able to be honest about sexual assault at our school. W e cannot be on the list of over 85 schools being investigated by the Department of Education for Title IX violations, accused of mishandling reported cases of sexual assault. Itis the duty of our school’s administration to make sure each and every case of sexual assault on our campus isprioritized and treated with sufficient care. • There is no reason for any student, male or female, to feel unsafe on our campus. These atrocities are occurring right here, at basement parties and in residential halls, and our school needs to make changes and recognize the severity of the situation. W e need to stop blaming the victim. W e can’tjust be bystanders. Look for our campus’team outside of dining halls next week and take the pledge with us at itsonus.org. W e need to be attentive of what is going on around us, and intervene before sexual assault happens. It’s on all of us to change the culture, not look the other way, and to make campus sexual assault obsolete.

The diary of a study abroad student Public behavior

Paige Brennecke Columnist Think about how many times you smile in a day. To the mailman down the street, to a stranger walking by, we are accustomed to smiling on a daily basis. In Paris if you smile, you g;et arrested. Ok, not really, but people only smile when

they're given a reason to. One month into my time there, I successfully adopted the “cold Parisian face” when in public. It's not just a look but more of a necessity to avoid unwanted attention. At home if a man were to walk by and say hello, you would think nothing of it. In Paris if you so much as flinch, you’ve got yourself a bird on your shoulder that won’t go away. It isn’t nearly as scary as it may sound. If you continue walking as ifyou're in your own little world, they go right on about their way. O n the Metro if you make eye contact with someone (male or female), you're just about the strangest person in that train car. It is more of a social rule - just worry about yourself,

and don’t disturb those around you. In London, my friend Karley (who was studying there) and I were walking down the street that her apartment was on. Itwas about 9 p.m., dark, and a man walked by and harmlessly said, “'Elio ladies." I didn’t so much as flinch. I couldn’t have told you what the man even looked like, considering I had not even looked at him, and his greeting went right over my head. Karley immediately responded, “Hello!” I felt so rude, but after realizing how we had both adapted to two totally different cultures, it was rather amusing. I asked her if it was normal to respond to greetings from men in public like that. She said ifsomeone says hello, you most certainly respond. I went on to

People you may know Misunderstandings of life as a musiscian

Alicia Ghastin Arts Co-Editor Alicia Ghastin, with a few questions for those people who have some misunderstandings of lifeas a musician.

Why is going into teaching such a bad thing? I am a pianist at Hope studying music education. Ilove performing and am striving to reach the highest quality of art I can. But, when I tell people I am studying piano they immediately ask, “So, you’ll be teaching, right?” as ifthat’s a bad thing. Teaching is a profession that is personal and comes from the heart. There may be artists that resort to teaching from necessity

______ A n c h c /rl Jimmy Champane A m a n d a Long A m a n d a Littleton Alex Belica Alek M o l e n a a r

because they can’t make itin the music world through solo gigs alone. Those aren’t the great teachers. In my experience those are the bitter teachers that become frustrated with the profession. A good teacher is a listener, a mentor, a friend. A good teacher recognizes a student's unique talents and gifts and then helps him build them up. Being called to be a teacher of any kind isn't a bad thing. Education isn't a cop out

tell her how in Paris that is an absolute “no no.” She asked why. Iwent on to tellher how itcould put you in a dangerous situation, if you went about it the wrong way - I found out the hard way the firstweek Iwas there. Just kidding, I just wanted to scare m y mom. I hope I haven’t left you thinking Paris is unsafe. I actually felt safer than ever there. I couldn’t help but laugh when people there stressed how important itwas to be incredibly careful of pickpocket’s. Just pickpocket’s? In some areas of the States people are worrying about being shot! As a currently standing Senior, I know we are all starting to freak out with one semester almost done. W e have to realize that the real

and I am not a lesser quality musician for choosing to focus in education. Why are you convinced I will be broke? In art, I feel that music is generalized greatly. The performer is told he will end up teaching. The teacher is told he will end up jobless. All musicians are told they are not marketable in our new “global economy." But,what isthatthing we just can’t seem to turn off? Our iTunes, our car radios, our Spotify, our Pandora. Music is present, natural, and constantly relevant to our culture. There are many career opportunities out there, a musician just has to

world presents adaptions that we will have to take on. Even when Iwas completely lost and roaming the streets of Paris, I looked confident as if I had a destination. While we are used to acting one way, we need to put on different “hats” for different situations. Whether this is in the business world, street encounters or even just doing a preliminary interview for a job, we need to learn how to adapt to situations and be confident, appearing as if we know exactly where we are going and what we are doing. Ifyou have questions about Pagie’sstudy abroad adventures or want to know more please email her at: pa ige.brehnecke@hope.edu

be creative. Why 'do you judge me by talent? Performing takes hard work. It takes lonely hours of practice and technique building. Ittakes determination and acceptance of criticism. Noone can just sit down at the piano and have notes flow from them, it all comes from somewhere. There are great sacrifices that go into performing and I think that so much of that goes unappreciated. Maybe I have just been pent up in a practice room too long, so I'm a bit on edge.

I think my leg hair turns off the exact sort of men I don’t want to be dating, but that’s an issue for another column.) When I think about how I normally roll out of bed and head to class, sometimes with­ out brushing my hair, I have thoughts like “how will I ever get a boyfriend or husband if I never look cute?” or “I feel sorry for the people that have to look at me today.”Luckily Iam almost always able to catch myselfwhen I think those thoughts.

that I even have those thoughts disgusts me and makes me sad. W h y do I feel like I owe it to others to be visually pleas­ ing? W h y am I sometimes more worried about how I look in class than how I didn’t do the reading? I shouldn’t feel like I owe people anything in re­ gards to my looks.

I had to gain a better understanding as to why I have shaved since Iwas 13 years old in the firstplace. Honestly, I have begun to E m m a Fondell realize understand that I do like Voices Editor shaving. I do it for myself.

What will people my friend in Jazz Dance class, think if they see it? Will my and I told her about how I am dance teacher see it and be participating in “No Shave grossed out?

was having some doubt and unsure ifIshould reallykeeping going through with it. She then asked why and Ianswered that I’m embarrassed of what people will think if they see my underarms. Then, she said, “W h o cares! I don’t think anyone will care.” She isabsolutely right. W h y do I have to jcare about ifother people, men or women, will care? I am free to do what I want with my body, and if that means I don’t shave for a month then that is what I will do. Maybe what will help these certain cultural norms begin to diaspear is to not care so much about what people think. It is just hair. Hair. That's it. So I will conclude by saying this: I believe all women should feel empowered and free to shave or not to shave. Deciding either way to shave or not shave your legs or arm pits does not make you any more or less of a woman. W h y should it? Again, It’s just hair. However, I think it’s important to ponder and ask ourselves or each other why we shave. Do we do it for ourselves? For others? Or because society tells us to?

The “Last Lecture” lessons ♦ Dr. ®reen, from page 1 to do this “means changing the system itself.” In order to visualize how this was to be done, Green cited the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and what they have identified as seven key principles that make participation in spirituality and all groups mutually beneficial to all. Going back to the complacency that Green sees in society, he equated bystanders as those who stood on a moving sidewalk. “The system isdesigned to move you toward injustice. Even if you do nothing, the sidewalk will take you there,” said Green.

Injustice barriers can be broken down by various actions suggested by John Perkins that Green touched on: picking a ethnically diverse neighborhood to live in, broadening one’s view of the church by worshiping with a “range of people”, sending children to a school that is not “ethically and economically segregated”, and working towards greater inclusion where one works and volunteers. With these, people are walking in the opposite direction on the moving sidewalk, explained Green. Striving for inclusion is also essential, as outlined in his lecture. Inclusion ismuch more than being nice to

someone, while they adapt to “systems and structures built primarily for the majority.” Citing a lecture given by Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, from four years ago, Green, says that all identities need to know they are welcomed, opportunities to work together must be made and decisions must serve the wishes of everyone. To conclude the night, Green referenced the title of his “last lecture.” In order for the everyday person to have a hand in socialjustice does not mean “We...have to be Mother Teresa, other contributions, no matter how small, take society that much closer to justice," Green said.

Hope College's men’s soc­ cer team fell to Kalamazoo last Wednesday, knocking them out of the M I A A Tournament and ending their season. 287 people were in atten­ dance at Kalamazoo’s Macken­ zie Field to watch the Hornets take the Dutchmen 2-0. The l°ss took the team to a definitive sea­ son record of 13-7-1 overall and 8-5-1 in conference play. Kalamazoo started the first half with dominating play, cap­ turing their opening goal in the seventh minute. The strike came from freshman Jacob Waier, his firstgoal of his collegiate career. Fate’s hands were with Waier that night as he took the second and final goal in the 59th min­ ute. He had a 100 percent shotto-goal conversion rate for the game. From the scoreline, it would appear that Kalamazoo took control of the game, but some

of the statistics were similar or even in favor of the Dutchmen. Both Hope and Kalamazoo made eight shots on goal throughout the game, and the two team’s only cards were dealt out at the same time; one to Hope’s Gavin Midlam (T5) and one to Kalam­ azoo’s Antonio Pisto in the 31st minute. Hope made a total of 12 cor­ ner kicks to Kalamazoo’s five. The Hornet’s even had more fouls than the Dutchmen, 14 compared to nine. Unfortunately for Hope, the game was decided by successful chances and faults in the defen­ sive line. It was the third time this season that Kalamazoo was able to overtake Hope. Keeping that record in mind, the loss came as a surprise to many Hope fans who were ex­ pecting another M I A A tourna­ ment win and automatic bid into the N C A A Division III tourna­ ment like last season. To say that the team had a

poor season would be unfair. They scored a total of 36 goals overall and made 17 assists. Hope made 319 shots in 21 games, the most coming from Josh Hagene (T7) with 63. Goalkeeper Ethan Beswick (T6) finished the season with seven shutouts and 103 saves, resulting in a save percentage of 81.1 percent. The Dutchmen’s average shot-per-game was 15.2 and their goal-per-game average was 1.7. Hope will be losing eight se­ niors this year: forward Brandon Underwood; midfielders Camer­ on Dice, Connor Kogge, Tarwo Konbloa, Gavin Midlam; and de­ fenders Jonathon DeVries, Lo­ gan Sikkenga, and Corey Stelk. Lucky for the Dutchmen, star players Hagene, Beswick, David Porte (T6), and Toby Blom (T6) will all be back for at least one more year of play. This season marked their 16th consecutive season with a double-digits winning record.

Football overcomes Trine late in g a m e Kyle Bernaclak S ports Editor

O n Saturday, the Hope Col­ lege football team won its sixth game of the season as they took down the Thunder of Trine Uni­ versity 31-24 at home. As seen previously in the season, late offensive heroics led the Flying Dutchmen to an upset victory. Sitting at 2-2 in the M I A A Conference entering Saturday’s game, the Dutchmen needed to make some big moves in order to prevent the Thunder from winning the M I A A Champion­ ship. Knowing that Trine only needed one more win to be crowned champions, Hope was determined to halt them from getting the title. “This was a very important game that we definitely were quite prepared for," Andrew Lu­ cas (’17) said. To begin the game, Hope kicked off to Trine and their high-powered offense was about to be put in motion. To get out of the game with a victory, the Dutchmen needed to have a per­ fect defensive effort that lasted ;our quarters. O n Trine’s open-

The Dutchmen relied on a late offensive strike to take down Trine. ing possession, they were able to march down the field all the way to the Hope 25-yard line but were stopped after an incom­ plete pass on fourth down. The next few minutes were characterized by a series of pos­ sessions for both squads that were unsuccessful and died out quickly; both the Thunder and the Dutchmen could not string together offensive momentum. At 1 minute 29 seconds in the first quarter, Robbie Kish (T6)

made one of the first offensive mistakes by throwing an inter­ ception right in the hands of a Trine defender. Kish, who has been stellar allseason, was likely to recover from this setback. The beginning of the second quarter was riddled with much of the same lack of offensive production. At the 11 minute 34 second mark, Hope gained the ball deep in their own terri­ tory. After a few quick comple­ tions and then some strong runs, the Dutchmen were able to push their way up the field. In the red zone, Hope could not get good ball progression. They were forced to kick a field goal, which was through the uprights by Aaron Mick (’15). O n the ensuing possession the Thunder wasted no time after receiving the kickoff and marching down the field. In five plays, they went 65 yards and rushed for a touchdown, giv­ ing them a 7-3 lead. On Trine’s kickoff, Brandon Zervas (’15) re­ turned the ball 52 yards, all the way to the Thunder 29-yard line. In tremendous fieldposition, the

Dutchmen needed- to take ad­ vantage of their ball placement. Thankfully they came away with some points; Mick kicked a field goal from 32 yards away. One of the main highlights of the first half came on the Thunder’s next possession. Af­ ter putting together a relatively good drive, Lucas intercepted a pass and returned it 24 yards to the Hope 49-yard line. This is where the Dutchmen needed to establish themselves and turn this drive into a touchdown. Af­ ter a few first downs, Hope fi­ nally mustered together enough for their first touchdown of the game. Kish threw a 12-yard pass to Matt Kroll (’16), then it was followed by a necessary twopoint conversion pass to Patrick Wolf (’17). Going into the sec­ ond half, Hope had the lead and the momentum by being ahead 14-7. The start of the third quarter was rather slow, with a series of drives that did not progress into much. Finally, at 5 minute 29 seconds, Mick hit yet another field goal, putting Hope ahead 17-7. This was one of the signifi­ cant points in the game where the Dutchmen had to force themselves to not become com­ placent. At the very end ofthe quarter, the Thunder inched ever closer as they put more points up on the board with a long passing touchdown. Trine was now only down by three points, 17-14. With the game close, Hope knew that they had to be dili­ gent on both sides of the ball. Unfortunately, on Trine’s first possession of the quarter, they put together a 64-yard drive that ended with a rushing touch­ down. This put the Thunder in the lead, 21-17. Then, on their

next possession, they were able to score again; this time they kicked a field goal from 28 yards out. The Dutchmen defense did not hold their ground. The Dutchmen were not ready to fold yet. Getting the ball on their own 33-yard line, Hope knew that they had a great amount ofyards to gain in order to tiethe game. Kish and the rest of the offensive was willing to accept the challenge and gradu­ ally pushed down the field. At 5 minute 5 seconds Reggie Dun­ can (’15) broke the deficit as he pranced into the end zone to tie the game 24-24. In need of a monumental de­ fensive stop, the Dutchmen de­ fense came through and stopped the Thunder in the midst of their next drive. Taking over on their own 29-yard line, the Dutchmen were in for another hefty drive. Kish took over the passing-at­ tack and gradually progressed down the field. Then, he con­ nected with Kroll for a 34-yard pass for a touchdown with only 1 minute 14 seconds remaining on the clock. Once again the Dutchmen were late heroes. They put together one final defensive stop and came away with the 31-24 victory. This prevented Trine from being crowned M I A A Champions. Hope moved to 6-3 overall. “Collectively our team as a whole played extremely well,” Lucas said, “But especially our defensive line that put pressure on the quarterback all day.” This Saturday, Hope takes on Kalamazoo College in their final game at home. “I can't imagine we will do anything different in prepara­ tion for Kalamazoo because we have done it the same all year,” Lucas said.
